Theatre: 4x4x4

19 Jan – 17 Feb @ The Actors’ Hub, East Perth ·
Presented by the Actors’ Hub ·

A team of actors is testing its mettle four nights a week over the next month by performing a different show each night. In 4x4x4, the same team from The Actors’ Hub will perform four separate 60-minute shows during Fringe World – four nights, four shows, across four weeks.

Director Amanda Crewes described it as an amazing challenge for the actors.

Implied Consent gives a 360-degree perspective on what people believe consent is, giving an often harrowing exploration as to how they imply it. “The challenge was creating a piece that is both entertaining and truthful to the devastating impact this issue has on us culturally,” Crewes said.

In L’Appel Du Vide, the actors use physical theatre and Jacques Lacoq basel masks to explore different stages of life and how the relationships we form, and connections we yearn for, are impacted by things we think we want. Crewes described it as otherworldly and a rare opportunity to see basel masks being used in Perth theatre. “The story is told through movement only so we spent a lot of time making sure the physical storytelling was clear,” she said.

The Les Darcy Show is a high octane, action-packed piece featuring dancing and fighting set in the early 1900s, focusing on the short but incredibly full life of the Australian boxing legend. Called the Maitland Terror, Darcy won 52 of his 56 fights and was crowned middleweight champion of the world – all before his tragic end in 1917 at the tender age of 21. “The actors have had to master Irish dances and physical boxing,” Crewes said. “They have to throw a punch – and a good one at that! “It has rich and gritty Aussie, Irish and American characters and, at its core, it’s a celebration.”

Steve Irwin and Dame Edna Everage are brought to life in An Evening with… as they explore the question: who is the ultimate Australian? In a style reminiscent of Have You Been Paying Attention?, both characters battle it out as they talk sex, politics and religion. “We wanted to honour these characters everyone knows so well while saying something about divisive thinking,” Crewes said.

4x4x4 plays 7.30pm January 19 to February 17 with Implied Consent on
January 19, 25, February 2, 10 & 14; L’Appel Du Vide on January 20 & 26,
February 1, 7 & 17; An Evening with.. on January 24, February 3, 8 & 16
and The Les Darcy Show on January 27, 31, February 9 & 15.

Please note: the plays feature occasional coarse language, sexual
and drug references and violence.

The Actors’ Hub is at 129 Kensington Street, East Perth.

As you wander through this carte du jour of live carnal mischief, experience visceral masterpieces and ferocious mayhem as the surreal becomes reality. Don’t miss the world premiere of this immersive, site-specific, theatrical extravaganza set amongst the original works of Salvador Dali. Audiences move freely through the Dali Land exhibition at their own pace, choosing where to go and what to see, and everyone’s journey is different and unique.

The cult late night variety show and debaucherous disco after party, comes to the Surrealist Salon right in the heart of DALI LAND. Your favourite Briefs boys, with their fierce sisters from Hot Brown Honey, and a cavalcade of world-class, hand selected cabaret and circus artists will deliver an overdose of satisfaction and dance floor smashes. Stomp it out on the catwalk, dance until late, laugh until you ache and surrender to the utter fabulousness that is Club Briefs.

For those who wish to continue the party late into the next morning, The Salon Bar will unleash its nightly soiree from 10:00pm to 5:00am. Taking over the Metro City roof top, the Salon Bar will not only boast some of Perth’s best views, but will accommodate your nightly desires with surreal cocktails, along with an epic program of live music, magic, burlesque and comedy.

DALA LAND will partner with surrounding restaurants to present Dali Dinner to the people of Perth. These rare culinary experiences will mimic the likes of the extravagant dinner parties Dali hosted himself in the 1970s. Featuring weird and wonderful recipes created by the Maestro himself, Dali Dinners will offer an evening of surreal degustation.

Milo McCabe: 1001 Moments with Troy Hawke
Calendar, Fringe World

Comedy: Milo McCabe: 1001 Moments with Troy Hawke!

19 Jan -17 Feb @ Brass Monkey ·
Presented by Best of British Productions ·

Critically acclaimed British character stand-up Milo McCabe makes his Perth debut with his sell-out Edinburgh show, 1001 Moments with Troy Hawke! Society doesn’t have a clue what to do with homeschooled naif Troy Hawke.. equally Troy is clueless as to how to process what’s going on in front of him.

He’s puzzled by so much…the middle aisle of Aldi, the word ‘sick’ as a compliment and being falsely accused of shouting in Poundland. Troy is on a quest to just make sense of it all. A quest that also leads to his involvement in a Liverpool street robbery that made the national news.

As seen on Benidorm (ITV), Live at the Electric (BBC3) and Blue Go Mad in Ibiza (C5)

Theatre: Feminah

18-26 January @ The Blue Room Theatre ·
Presented by Charlotte Otton & The Blue Room
Theatre Summer Nights ·

Feminah is a cabaret piece about the vulgar women of the world; the women that embrace all things trashy and beastly and that celebrate their intrinsically hideous selves. It is a power ballad for women too scared to unleash the beast within and let her wreak havoc. Feminah follows one woman on a war-path to dismantle every structure set in place to keep her calm and appropriate; she’s here to destroy the town, and maybe take you with it.

A solo show created by Perth’s staunchly seductive powerhouse Charlotte Otton, Feminah is an ode to women that censor themselves for the sake of being professional or tasteful.

Presented with The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights, this explosion of gritty
femininity is what happens when a woman refuses the idea of ‘having it all’ and instead, annihilates it.

Charlotte Otton’s debut sell out show Let me finish. was nominated for 7 of The Blue Room Theatre’s 2018 awards, and won the Member’s Choice and Judge’s Choice awards!

“One of the most exciting shows I’ve seen in the indie sector for a few years,
I’m very keen to see what happens next for the artists involved.” -Performing Lines
